Accents and dialect WASRe: Hello

Which reminds me... my relatives always accused me of
having an affected accent--/ai/ at the start of
"either", etc.--certainly not southern Indiana.  Now I
know that part of it is that I assimilate things very
easily--my year with a Canadian professor, my summer
in Wigan, etc--all these things get built in.  But I
sometimes wonder if I don't somehow "practice" these
things, if only subconscioulsy....
